11” wide and 8” tall with 209 pieces of cherry, walnut and oak. I’d put the oak in the crawl space under the house and forgotten it. With the nasty winter we had it had started to spalt on me. This made for a very interesting feature ring.

Very nice. And the spalting is beautiful. Don’t you just love a happy accident. Been considering an attempt at a segmented bowl. What type of glue do you use?

- Dave Smith


I Titebond III for gluing the segments together. It has a longer open time so you don’t have to be in such a hurry to get the ring clamp on it. For gluing the rings together I just use Titebond Origional or Gorilla wood glue.

That looks great. If you don’t mind me asking, did you turn this in stages or did you glue everything first, then hollow it out?
